This volume serves to provide an international overview of personal injury compensation in different geographical areas (15 countries already included), with a special focus on the methods used to ascertain the injury and the related damages. It also goes on to clarify the logical and methodological steps required for a sequential, in-depth ascertainment of any traumatic event and the related personal damage, both pecuniary and non-pecuniary. Personal injury is a legal term for an injury to the body, mind or emotions suffered by the plaintiff under tort and/or civil law regulations. Damages related to the injury can be pecuniary or non-pecuniary in nature. Although several comparative studies and research projects on tort and civil law and personal injury claims aimed at developing new tools for promoting harmonization of private law have been performed at an international level, heterogeneity and divergences still exist in the definition and compensation of personal injury and damage across different national legislative systems. The starting point for any awarding procedure should be a medical, or rather a medico-legal, assessment to gain evidence on the trauma or event causing the injury, the mechanism of injury, the pre-existing health status of the injured party, and the health consequences of the injury (temporary and permanent impairment, work incapacity, etc.). In order to pursue the ultimate goal of an international harmonization of personal injury compensation, it is of upmost importance to define the quality requirements for the medico-legal ascertainment methodology, which are essential for guaranteeing the objectivity, rigor, and reproducibility of the data and the evidence collection procedure. Currently, there are no supra-national medico-legal guidelines dealing with the ascertainment methodology of personal injury and damage under tort and civil law.

Civil Costs: Law and Practice is well established as the authoritative reference for both costs practitioners and those who need a more rigorous analysis of the law than is possible in popular shorter works on the subject. Independent reviewers have said that it is ‘the Bible of the legal costs world’ and that it is ‘a life support system for every litigator’. All aspects of civil costs law are covered. The detailed commentary is scrupulously impartial, such that independent reviewers have noted that ‘there is not a single proposition put forward that does not have a detailed corresponding reference for the authority’. Reviewers have also noted that on ‘the rare occasion where the writer’s opinion alone is being given, this is made crystal clear’. The authorities are often quoted word-for-word, but even when they are not, they are cited, usually with pinpoint precision. There are literally thousands of footnotes, and where appropriate, difficult points are explained by way of flowcharts or diagrams. All of the rates and figures that a costs practitioner could wish for are set out in easily accessible forms, such as tables and charts. Many of the chapters have been substantially rewritten for the third edition, and all the major changes and developments since the Jackson Reforms are addressed, including: • Consumer protection and contracts of retainer;• Costs budgeting and prospective case management;• Relief from sanctions following Mitchell and Denton;• Human rights and the recovery of success fees;• The rise in applications for security for costs;• The greater use of orders for interim payments;• Changes in the way the Bar charges for its services; • Proportionality under the new overriding objective;• Provisional assessments;• The expansion of fixed costs regimes; • Part 36 offers, in both substantive litigation and in costs litigation; • The changes in costs procedure, including the compulsory requirement to make an offer; and• Changes to the format of Bills of Costs and Points of Dispute.Civil Costs is written primarily for members of the judiciary who deal with civil costs, and for costs lawyers, costs draftsmen and costs counsel. Civil litigators, barristers practising civil law and managing partners will also find it useful. Unusually for a practitioners’ text, it is well regarded by common law lawyers outside England and Wales. This is because its extensive citation of older authorities makes it easy to identify principles that are globally relevant.
